Associate Professor and Chair of Old Testament
Charlie Trimm loves to inspire students to recognize the beauty of the Old Testament and its relevance for the life of the church today. Having served for several years in pastoral ministry, he strives to encourage the spiritual growth of his students in all his classes. He received his Ph.D. from Wheaton College in 2012, writing his dissertation on God acting as a divine warrior in the exodus. His research interests include warfare in the ancient Near East, difficult topics relating to the ethics of God in the Old Testament, Exodus, and J.R.R. Tolkien. He is married to Mariah and has four children, Eily, Kellen, Brynne and Deklan. When he is not teaching or writing, he can often be found spending time with family or watching Arsenal, his favorite football (soccer) team.
